TJ Hockenson Draft Decision Interview

TJ Hockenson News

  • TJ Hockenson has big day · Dec 26, 2022

    T.J. Hockenson produced two touchdowns and 109 yards on 13-of-16 receiving in the team's win over the Giants in week 16.

    One has to wonder if the Lions are regretting moving the top target but Kirk Cousins and the Vikings certainly aren't complaining. Hockenson has already produced career-high totals in all categories and could reach the 1,000-yard threshold with 161 yards over his two remaining games. Still only 25, DLF's TE4 should remain a fixture as a top-five player at the position for years to come.

  • TJ Hockenson busy in Vikings debut · Nov 7, 2022

    TJ Hockenson caught all nine of his targets for 70 yards in his first game for the Vikings.

    Hockenson enjoyed his first game with quarterback Kirk Cousins who is no doubt a marked improvement over Jared Goff. The star tight end has been hit or miss since Matthew Stafford was shipped out west. Perhaps a competent quarterback was all that was needed to unlock his potential. Already ranked as the TE5 at DLF, he could move in front of George Kittle soon if things continue as they are now.

  • TJ Hockenson traded to Minnesota · Nov 1, 2022

    The Lions have traded T.J. Hockenson, a 2023 fourth-round pick, and a 2024 conditional fourth round pick to the Vikings for a 2023 second-round pick and a 2024 third-round pick.

    Wow. We had mentioned earlier in the week Hockenson could be dealt, but sending him to a division rival is a stunner. Hockenson hasn't quite lived up to the billing of a top ten draft pick, but he's been solid throughout his career, posting totals of 186/2,068/15 in 47 career games with Detriot. Still, the consistency has never been there. Case in point, he posted a monster 8/179/2 game just this year in week four against Seattle. Unfortunately, the rest of his season has seen him post just 18 catches, 216 yards, and one touchdown in his other six games combined. Minnesota will undoubtedly pick up his fifth year option and look to sign him long-term, something the Lions were clearly unwilling to do. Hockenson should keep his TE1 status with the move and hopefully the Vikings can use him more consistently in their offense. His ranking as the TE5 seems pretty safe, though he's far away from the elite category.

  • TJ Hockenson could be traded · Oct 29, 2022

    TJ Hockenson continues to be mentioned as the NFL trade deadline approaches.

    Hockenson is currently in the fourth-year of his rookie deal and, as a former first round selection, the team elected to pick up his fifth-year option early in the pre eason, keeping him under contract through the 2023. At only 25 years of age, it stands to reason the team would want to keep as many offensive playmakers around as they search for a new face of the franchise at quarterback. But, if the financials beyond 2023 don't fit, there may greater return in receiving compensation in return now as opposed to rolling the dice when he becomes a free agent in 2024. On the season, he's produced a 23/315/3 line and is found as DLF's TE5. Hockenson remains one of the premier names at the tight end position.

  • TJ Hockenson erupts · Oct 3, 2022

    TJ Hockenson had eight catches for 179 yards and two touchdowns in Detroit's loss to Seattle.

    With Amon-Ra St. Brown on the shelf, Hock took the game over with a number of big plays, including an 81-yard reception. After posting just a 10/82/1 line the first three weeks, this was a much needed breakout performance for the young tight end. It seems his ranking of TE5 is safe after all. Look for Hockenson to remain a TE1 going forward.
